EXCERPT FROM "VOICE OF THE GHETTO"
BY VYBZ KARTEL

CHAPTER 1: THANK YOU JAH
"I start this book as I start each day of my life, with a "Thank you Jah" for
giving Adidja Palmer the inspiration to be Vybz Kartel; may the words on the
pages of this book be well received, may it touch the heart of the oppressors of
my people so that they may treat the poor with compassion. May it be a tool that
Society will utilize to understand ghetto livity, so that you may change your
impression of us and start treating ghetto people with respect - whether they
are your helpers, gardeners, bar maids, drivers or any marginalized person in
Jamaica. May it reach the desks of the prison officials so that they may
implement more humane and positive procedures in our jails so that our people
can be welcomed back into society after they have done their time. May it be a
reference point for Jamaican males that have never taken the time to understand
what our mothers, baby mothers, sisters and women in general go through. Most of
all, may it be a source of motivation for my people especially the young ones as
they find their way through life in this lovely place Xaymaca, its original name
before the genocidal Christopher Columbus came to plunder and destroy an entire
Amerindian people under the guise of Christianity. It is with this hope that I
have taken the time to write this book in between my musical career and my role
as father, and son; I ask that this book is blessed. The hate from the haters is
expected but guess what, Kartel sending you a blessing too because the Gaza nuh
bad mind. Come on, I know you going to read this book, that's okay with me, the
only way we can have a better Jamaica is if we spend the time learning from each
other."
